The Engachon is a hybrid dog, also known as a designer dog. The Engachon is a cross between the Bichon Frise and the English Toy Spaniel. It is not always possible to determine the characteristics, temperament or traits of a mixed breed. You will likely find the Engachon has a combination of the characteristics found in both the Bichon Frise and the English Toy Spaniel.
I thought for several weeks that I had a cavachon….I read on several web sites that the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the English Toy Spaniel were the same breed. However I have learnded that is not so. They are closely related but are not the same breed. So now that I know I do own an Engachon, I’m on a quest to meet up with other Engachon owners!!! Lucy is 13 weeks old now and weighs about 4 lbs. She is the sweetest dog I’ve ever owned! She is a very calm puppy and enjoys just being in my lap most of the time. She does sometimes have that bichon “buzz” and it’s so funny! I know that this is a pretty new breed and I have not been able to find much information so far. Please e-mail me if you too are the proud owner of the best little breed in the whole wide world. Lucy has been super easy to train and gets along with every other animal she has come in contact with….including our 80 lb yellow lab, our extremely skittish black cat, and our guinie pigs!!! Lucy thinks everyone is her friend! She is also great with our young children! I could go on and on…..I’ve never seen a breed as perfect as this!!! I’ve heard many people complaining about their Cavachons being hard to potty train, getting larger than expected, climbing, digging, and barking……I’m no expert and I’m very new to the Engachon breed, but so far have not had ANY of these problems!!! So supper blessed to the owner of an amazing little Engachon puppy!!!
